Formula Bone are the award breaking London 3 piece band of the moment. Since their debut at a Sonic Mook Experiment Future Rock and Roll night in 2004, Formula Bone have quickly gained popularity and acclaim after a perky series of extraordinary and exciting UK and London shows.
The band’s success recently culminated in Steve Lamacq playing the opening track from their home recorded Rupert the Bastard EP on Radio 1. Their next release will be a revamped version of the EP , available soon on Brainlove Records. Formula Bone will also appear on the next Brainlove Records compilation with Piney Gir, Vicki Churchill, Bishi and Junkplanet among many others.
The driving force behind Formula Bone is Fidel Villeneuve. At 19 he had his first album released on Digital Hardcore, and has had numerous other small releases to his name. All these and more have earned Fidel a reputation as a fearless rock and roll innovator. Formula Bone split in 2005, but a new band, APPLICANTS, sprang from it's twitching corpse.
